          Right in the Art deco district and very close to nice shops and South beach. Free use of deckchairs but have to cary them to the beach yourself.

          Noisy till late and rooms quite small with no chair or desk. Booked 9 months ahead and request to have adjoining rooms was ignored.

        • Couple

          We ate at lots of local restaurants and walked along nearby Collins Ave to do some shopping. The beach was across the street. There were beach chairs and towels in the room which made going to the beach easy.

          You have to valet park your car. It takes a while to get it when you want to go any place that is not with in walking distance.

          The staff went above and beynd to make us happy. Our ac unit wasn't working and they came up within 10 minutes and replaced it. We also left our jackets in our room when we left for the airport. I called the hotel and they arranged for a driver to bring the jackets to the airport, which we had before our flight. They were awesome!

          The location was nice because the hotel was on Ocean Dr. Right across from the beach.

          The service was overall awful, the hotel room did not have central air conditioning and there was only one very small and quite slow elevator so we ended up taking the steps often.

          Building is an Art Deco hotel and therefore a bit noisy, especially on party nights but expected this in Miami Beach. Good location if you want that scene.

          The rooms were excellent - very clean and comfortable. The position was excellent.

          The staff were not very friendly, especially those that served the complimentary breakfast. They were more interested in serving those who were paying. We did not have breakfast on the second day.

          Location is the best, rooms are very spacious and very simple, but tastefully furnished.

          The restaurant upfront is the busiest on the street, a little bit too loud.
